The rest is mystery. Meon Hill, Gloucestershire
Meon Hill, in Gloucestershire, is a lovely highlight of the Cotswolds. From boasting market gardens to having a deep-rooted connection to the Iron Age, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has more to offer than just breathtaking landscapes. You can see the Cotswold hills, Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace and burial place of William Shakespeare) and the Vale of Evesham, all from this one spot. The hill is also said to have served as the inspiration for the location of Weathertop in J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings.' Head here to experience a taste of Middle-earth in the heart of England.
